Dishing Up the Dirt

Collard Greens & Bok Choy Slaw with Miso Sauce

If you belong to a CSA or you frequent your local farmers market I think turning pretty much any vegetable into a “slaw” is a good way to go if you are stumped on what to do with a particular veggie or you’re just feeling uninspired. The trick is getting a really tasty sauce to toss everything into and voila! Best side dish or use of veggies that were on their way to your compost pile.

I like this slaw a lot because I think collard greens really hold up to a creamy dressing well. The bok choy stems add a lovely crunch and the sweet and salty miso sauce really tie this whole salad together. I hope you enjoy this fast, tasty, and very nutritious slaw as much as we did!
